This Google Docs Update Will Allow Users to Type by Speaking

Google Docs has introduced a new package of updates, which includes a very handy feature: voice typing for Google Docs.

Now, writers, students and busy people will be able to record their thoughts on paper simply by speaking into a smartphone, tablet or computer. Google Docs will take anything spoken into a device and turn it into a word processing document. This will especially fill a need for people who like to write on the go, whether it be to increase productivity on their commutes, make a shopping list at the mall or quickly jot down an idea in the middle of a busy day.

There are several other very useful features included in the Google Docs update. For example, users can now perform a Google search from within a document with the research tool.
